Milano Bike Ride

On a beautiful Summer morning I watched a happy father and oblivious baby enjoy the beauty of the ancient streets of Milan. Another in my selective color series.

Street Art In Firenze

I am fascinated by people who create miraculous art only to know that in hours or days it will be gone forever. Artists that do sand sculpture or ice sculpture or in this case a sidewalk painting all while knowing it will only last for hours. The next day it rained all day in Firenze and all I could think of was the temporary nature of what this man does. It must take a strong personality to cope with that.

Window Fashion in Milano

I am in the process of searching old images for post production. When I do this I frequently find images that I never shared or really studied at all. I never shared it because I found the window reflections annoying. Maybe they are but when I saw it I laughed out loud so the image works on some level.

This window was on a street in central Milan Italy not far from the Central Park.

Candidate #3…Street Kiss

I am starting to toy with the concept of doing more exhibition photography after we relocate. During the 1970’s I worked as a photojournalist in Pittsburgh and displayed some work in museum shows including the Carnegie Museum. I stopped working in the field when I became involved in printing and publication. I retired early so I could pick up Photography again and began doing photojournalism although this time without assignments. I am looking for work that Henri Cartier-Bresson would like.

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print. This one was taken in Paris at Sunset near the Arc de Triumph. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

Time to Roll

Every Friday night in Paris they start to arrive at Gare Montparnasse around 9:30 PM. The goal is to skate through the streets of Paris on a defined route until about 3 A.M. By 10 PM there about 10,000 people from all over the world getting ready to skate Pari-Roller!

Stop the World!

I used this image as the cover of my first book Stop the World!. One of my ex photography students said it made her feel voyeuristic to see this. I took that as a compliment. I believe Henri Cartier-Bresson would like this image after all it was a decisive moment.

A Street in Orléans

Orléans France is a sister city to New Orleans and while they have much in common they are fundamentally different. They both offer scenic beauty, architecture and are along important rivers. Both cities serve great food to their guests and have wide choices in dinning. New Orleans however is edgy, vibrant and sometimes a little vulgar. Orléans is almost bucolic in nature; they keep their edgy in Paris which is an hour away by train. This is a street in in Orléans adjacent to river Loire.

L’Université Paris-Sorbonne

The Sorbonne University is in the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank of Paris and a great place to walk around.It is one of the first Universities in the World and dates back to the early 13th Century. The architecture is striking and there are many nooks and crannies to explore. This door is the entry to the Law School across from the Pantheon. One of the things I love about old European cities are these magical entryways they have to enclosed enclaves that date back to the middle ages.

Good Night Kiss

Paris is the City of Lights and nighttime seems to be a social lubricant for kissing. As I am working on my book, I also realize that night time kisses in public are harder to capture. You can’t see as far and can’t use your flash so patience is a key. This shot was taken in Paris in 2011 and you can purchase a print by clicking here.

Passionate Kiss

Last week’s post (Bienvenue a Paris) received a lot of view and comments. What actually caused the young man to stick his face in my camera was the fact that he saw me taking this picture which will certainly be a part of my new book.
